How Do You Like Your Books: Print or Digital? An Analysis on Print and E-Book Usage at the Graduate School of Education
Haugh, Dana
Journal of Electronic Resources Librarianship, v28 n4 p254-268 2016
The shift from physical materials to digital holdings has slowly infiltrated libraries across the globe, and librarians are struggling to make sense of these intangible, and sometimes fleeting, resources. Materials budgets have shifted to accommodate large journal and database subscriptions, single-title article access, and, most recently, e-book holdings. This analysis measures the impact of digital acquisitions in an academic setting during a highly transformative period of library practices. The study finds that both electronic "and" print books are valuable to the academic research community at the Graduate School of Education (GSE).
